Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim said on Monday that the Honduran interim government, which took over after a coup in late June, would not resist the international political pressure.

The minister said the new regime would not last long without the financial support of the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), without oil supply and relations with the United States.

"It will not last a month, only a few days or weeks," Amorim said at a press conference.

Amorim believes that the natural way for the country is the return of the deposed President Manuel Zelaya.

According to the minister, the coup in Honduras does not fit the reality of today's world. "There is no longer a place in the world for a coup like this, in which you arrive in the morning with a machine gun and put the president out of the country in his pajamas."

The minister also commented on the Organization of American States (OAS)' decision to exclude Honduras, saying that it bears no resemblance to the sanctions applied to Cuba in the 1960s.

Amorim also lamented over the two deaths in the violent incidents Sunday in Tegucigalpa, capital of Honduras. He also said Brazil had no plans of using violence to interfere.
